Chemical Strips (Type 2 Chemical Indicator according to ISO 11140-1:2014) for use with Helix-PCD in the monitoring of Formaldehyde Sterilization Processes.

Instructions for use

1. Insert the chemical indicator according to the selected process conditions within the pin (metal capsule) or slot (plastic capsule) of the screw cap; settle the reactive indicating ink towards the capsule lumen, and avoid folding zones printed with reactive indicating ink.

IMPORTANT: Avoid contact between chemical indicator and capsule interior surface, because result can be altered.

2. Put the capsule cap with a moderate pressure. CAUTION! Do not put the system into the fabric bag, it could interfere in the process.

3. For LTSF processes, start the selected program and test the process.

Initial color: bordeaux

4. After the period of ventilation, remove the indicator and evaluate the result. If the 4 bars reach the final color, the result can be considered successful, the sterilizer is working correctly. If one bar doesn’t reach the final color, it means that residual air is present in the sterilizer, therefore a malfunction of the equipment.

We suggest running the test once again, before sending the equipment to technical service.
